Van Gogh blankets

After the ruana project (which still has not been sewn, fringed, or washed) it was a relief to do something easier. This project was inspired by this Van Gogh painting.

I dyed yarn. This is Jaggerspun Superlamb, a washable Merino yarn. I usually don’t leave white spaces in the space-dyed yarn, but there is a lot of white in the painting so I thought that I needed it here.

I warped the loom for two blankets in an advancing twill.

The color in the detail shot is more true. It’s a soft blanket with a nice drape.

  1. I think this is the coolest project I’ve seen in a long time. Weaving to famous paintings… Just a really neat thing. I think your show will be a big hit!
